Chapter 2 places Caribbean regional integration in its context, briefly surveying the geographic and economic features of the region. It examines the history of West Indian regional integration, from before the Second World War to the present. It highlights the formative impact of the West Indies Federation and of subsequent, unsuccessful, attempts at political integration. It traces the shift toward economic, functional forms of integration, and examines the evolution of the constituent instruments of both CARICOM and the OECS. It offers a brief introduction to the different forms of economic integration, locating both regional organizations in their broader global context. It presents a basic introduction both to the law of treaty interpretation and to some of the rules and principles of international institutional law, including autointerpretation, international legal personality, implied powers, and the doctrine of ultra vires.

Keywords:   Caribbean history, economic integration, geography, West Indies Federation, treaty interpretation, international legal personality, autointerpretation, implied powers, ultra vires
